Social networking
sites are cornering the Internet market knocking off porn sites from the number one slot.

Bill Tancer has analyzed information for over 10 million Web users in his new book, "Click: What Millions of People are Doing Online and Why It Matters." Tancer said one of the major shifts in Internet use in the past decade had been the fall off in interest in pornography or adult entertainment sites.

Porn surfing had dropped to about 10 percent of searches from 20 percent a decade ago, and the hottest Internet searches now are for social networking sites. What is in interesting is that as social networking traffic has increased, visits to porn sites have decreased. His conclusion was that the 18-24 year old age group particularly was searching less for porn.
